FOREWORD 

Since the first issue of THE WORLD'S WARSHIPS was prepared by the late Fred T. Jane in 1915, it has 
passed through frequent fresh editions, but has altered its form but little. 

With a first-class naval war in progress, there is a constant demand for an up-to-date summary of the world's 
war fleets in a compact form. To meet this, a complete revision of the book's contents has been undertaken. This 
has been anything but a simple task, owing to the complications presented by casualties and the difficulty of 
obtaining details of new ships. 

In the following pages every effective warship in existence will be found listed, including those authorised or 
under construction, together with the date of launch or laying down, displacement, designed speed, armament and 
aircraft equipment. Oilers, transports and other auxiliaries possessing no fighting value have in the main been excluded. 
In the national interest, particulars of British ships laid down under War programmes cannot be given, but a list of 
all war losses is given as an appendix. 

Illustrations comprise photographs of typical ships of the principal navies. In a number of instances these 
have been reproduced from the current issue of "Jane's Fighting Ships". 

For assistance in the preparation of this volume I am indebted to Mr. Cyril Richardson. 

FRANCIS E. McMURTRIE.
